I think I caught a bit of dark detail along the edge.

Most people say M78 isn't much to look at, but it's one of my favorite objects. I guess it's just overshadowed by other nearby nebulae.

TE,

An excellent observation of M78. You have captured this reflection nebula very nicely. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

TenthEnemy,

Very nice sketch. It is one of those objects you need to spend some time with as you did here. I agree with you it is much overlooked but very impressive. :cool: :bow: :waytogo:

Frank :)

Fine sketch, and indeed of an overlooked object! M78 is one of my priority objects. Somehow, this nebula captivates me and I quite hope to sketch it soon - should my urban skies allow it.
